Low Level MacOS X Tip

Apparently MacOS X only allows 256 file descriptors by default and this can be problematic for applications like Zoe that need more. One way I found to get around this problem is to login as root and type unlimit. According to this page this will boost the file descriptor limit up to 10,240 for the current session only.

Update: I don’t think that unlimit command worked, as I experienced the same kind of error in Zoe that I have been. Further investigation is needed obviously.
